Well, Thanksgiving is over, and it is officially the start of the holiday season around here. There is Christmas music, lots of planning, shopping, and family time happening as we near the end of December. Along with the fun and exciting events, there also comes a lot of stress. There is so much pressure to do everything, and to do it perfect. We know its a busy time for all. Learning hoe to de-stress during the holidays is so important.
There are a few things I like to do when I am feeling those overwhelming feelings. I love to sneak away for just a few minutes, if only that. Boy, I would love to get an hour or two, but that doesn’t happen too often.
There is one spot in my home that I love to sneak away to relax and escape. Last year we remodeled our master bedroom, and created a cozy spot with a window seat next to our fireplace.
I have spent many hours here reading, working, and enjoying the views of the Escalante Mountain right outside our window. I know I am really lucky to have a great space like this to escape to.
One thing I have always loved to do is look through some of my favorite magazines. It’s a pretty great way to escape the holiday crazy and immerse myself into a world all its own. One of my favorites is the REALSIMPLE® magazine. The other day while I was grabbing a few last minute items for our Thanksgiving dinner, I came across the most recent issue, of REALSIMPLE® in the magazine aisle at Albertsons’s and knew I needed to snatch it up. It was the perfect thing to add to my holiday de-stress and escape the holiday craziness. I was excited to bring it home and get a little escape for some “me time”. Want to snatch one up yourself?

It was sitting right in front, like it was there just for me.
Being able to escape during the holiday madness is so important. I find myself getting more and more stressed and soon, I am no longer enjoying the holidays, so this place is a great place to recharge my batteries. And escaping with a good magazine like my new issue of REALSIMPLE® is perfect.
I love to check out what fun things they are featuring and great ideas and tips they may have.
I also love to sneak away with a cozy blanket, a little hot cocoa and something crunchy to eat along with it.
This time of year is particularly fun because I always decorate my bedroom just a bit for the holidays.
A simple tree is really all I need. I click on the fire, sit back with my magazine and enjoy my little escapes, even if just for a short time. It gives you time to collect yourself, to recharge your batteries, and to enjoy the holiday just a little bit more.
Do you do anything to help you escape the holiday stress? If so I would love to hear!
I love to hear other great ways to de-stress during the holiday season. Have a great day!
